Diagnostic imaging

Welcome to the Diagnostic Imaging Service at Melbourne Animal Specialist Hospital!

At Melbourne Animal Specialist Hospital, we understand the critical role that diagnostic imaging plays in veterinary medicine. Our state-of-the-art Diagnostic Imaging Service combines cutting-edge technology with the expertise of our experienced veterinary specialists to provide accurate and comprehensive diagnostic evaluations for your beloved pets.

Digital Radiology:

Our digital radiology service utilizes cutting-edge technology to capture high-resolution images of your pet’s internal structures. Digital radiography allows for quick image acquisition and enhances the clarity and detail of the images, enabling our specialists to detect even subtle abnormalities.

Ultrasound:

Ultrasound imaging is a valuable tool in veterinary medicine for examining internal organs and soft tissues in real time. This non-invasive and painless procedure allows our skilled sonographers to evaluate organs, identify abnormalities, and assists in guiding fine-needle aspirations and biopsies.

Computed Tomography (CT):

CT scans provide cross-sectional, three-dimensional images of your pet’s body, offering unparalleled detail and precision. Our advanced CT technology allows for rapid acquisition of images, reducing the time your pet needs to be under anaesthesia. CT scans are invaluable for detecting tumours, assessing complex fractures, identifying neurological conditions, evaluating the chest and abdomen, and aiding in surgical planning.

Fluoroscopy:

MASH is proud to offer fluoroscopy services, which provide real-time imaging of moving structures within your pet’s body. Using continuous X-ray beams to create an x-ray movie, we can observe the functioning of organs such as the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory system and urinary tract, as well as guiding minimally invasive fracture repair.

Once the imaging procedure is complete, our specialists carefully review and interpret the images, providing timely and accurate diagnostic reports to guide further assessment or treatment. We collaborate closely with your pet’s primary care team to develop personalized treatment plans and optimize your pet’s health outcomes.
